TRUFFLE TOUR EXPERIENCE

Truffles can be found in free areas like woods, wild grounds and along the river banks, but also in controlled areas named “tartufaie”, in other words, grounds with particular species of mycorrhizal plants. Truffle hunters are specialized searchers with the permission of the authorities in charge that, with the help of trained dogs, who are able to trac down and harvest truffles from the ground. In order to make the truffle to sprout again in the same point it is very important that hunters respect the regional and national laws and regulations. The tool used to extract truffles is called “vanghino”: it is a very little and special hoe, with a small metal blade on the top.
